Your Command cloud service software licenses include unlimited storage for archived video clips. All archive footage will include a watermark in the top left corner for legal purposes.
Note: As a general rule, the longer the video clip, the longer it will take the system to archive the footage. The max duration of an archive clip is 12 hours, which can be set under the Cameras section of the Admin tab.
